    This Union officer fought at Glorieta Pass, had once been expelled from a state legislature for striking another member, was ordered by General N.P. Banks to "correct the evil" of stragglers seizing commissary supplies, and died in a confrontation in which he told his assailant, "Shoot and be dam-ed!"
